Lords of Kilbourn


""…If I did venture up there, I would need a gun in case it was a setup or something. I didn’t know if the suspicious intruders would turn out to be playing a game of entrapment. They lure you in and then the game is all over for you…”

A compelling story, based on actual events, of one young man’s struggle to survive the urban nightmare of gang life in Chicago. Starting by giving the reader a reviting look into the often disturbing history of the gang he was a member of, Scott goes on to narrate the gripping story of his life as a gang-member. Whether you live in a city or not, whether you have kids or not, this book is a must-read. Violence, poverty, drug abuse, and frustration combine to fuel the undercurrents of gang culture that affect us all!
